Quotes of the day... 5/30/16

Rather than perceiving a moment 
as negative, open up to it. 
Nothing happens randomly.
There's a message, 
and an opportunity for growth 
in every situation.

When you are relaxed, interested, alert, 
receptive, not judging, open to the mystery, 
life will unfold before you. 
     ~ Zen Moments

about something that doesn't puzzle you.”

perceivers of the worlds.”

for your mental health.”

you and your family.

Quotes of the day... 5/23/16

What could be more futile, more insane, 
than to create inner resistance to what already is? 
What could be more insane than to oppose life itself, 
which is now and always now? Surrender to what is. 
Say “yes” to life — and see how life suddenly starts 
working for you rather than against you.”
     ~ Eckhart Tolle

but only for want of wonder.”
     ~ G. K. Chesterton

Quotes of the day... 5/19/16

“Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. 
If I keep on saying to myself 
that I cannot do a certain thing, 
it is possible that I may end 
by really becoming incapable of doing it. 
On the contrary, if I have the belief 
that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity 
to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.” 
     ~ Mahatma Gandhi

“Believe something and the Universe 
is on its way to being changed. 
Because you’ve changed, by believing. 
Once you’ve changed, other things start to follow.”
     ~ Diane Duane

“The moment you doubt whether you can fly, 
you cease for ever to be able to do it.” 
    ~ J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

Even if it appears you have nothing to give, 
you always have a smile, a compliment, 
forgiveness, positive imaginings. 
Everything given doubles back.
It's the energy of giving that moves
our future on a desirable path.

"Great opportunities 
to help others seldom come, 
but small ones surround us every day."
     ~ Sally Koch

Quotes of the day... 5/16/16

“Relax and give the play 
a chance to strut its stuff—
relax, stop wondering what it's all 'about'—
like many strange and familiar things, 
life included, this play 
isn't 'about,' it simply is. 
Don't try to enjoy it, let it try to enjoy you. 
Don’t try to understand it, 
let it try to understand you.”
     ~ E.E. Cummings 

Time isn’t something to fight against. 
Allow life to flow clean, with passion...
     ~adapted, Roman Payne

“Once we believe in ourselves, 
we can risk curiosity, wonder, 
spontaneous delight, or any experience 
that reveals the human spirit”
     ~ E.E. Cummings
